Set-AddressList "Public Folders" -RecipientFilter { RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder' } throws error

I'm getting the following error on an Exchange 2010 box when i run the following command
"Set-AddressList "Public Folders" -RecipientFilter { RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder' } "

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'Public Folders' couldn't be found on :NameofDC".
+ CategoryInfo :
NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Set-AddressList], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : 677A2E1,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.SetAddressList

Any ideas how to fix that?

    Hi Igamtech,
    I got into the exactly same senario. Has your issue been resoled?  

    I checked your above link and found it is for not being able to get in EMC. Are you sure it is related to this case? Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi Castlewood,
    I checked the link as well and found that it's related to a different issue. I actually have a dot in the NETBIOS name but it's not causing any issues. I'm still having the issue  running the cmdlet.
    Guess it's time to open a case with M$.
    I'll keep you updated.

    thx for the update. :)

    ...found the other thread with solution...the fix was to put a space in "Public Folders" as the technet thread outlined. Nice.
